I stood there in awe, soggy, wet, cold and shivering but could not take my eyes off the scene before me. It's hard to put words to this scene and all that I could come up with was the word "Serenity". The mood of the valley in full fall colors frosted over by the foggy mist that clung to the river and flowed even more gently over the surface moving in and out of the trees and across the reflections. I was calmly aware of every breath of cold air and it was invigorating. I can only thank the people that came before me whom had the foresight enough to preserve this, undisturbed and ever changing.
